43rd edition 2017 - 2018

Twelve months: an MBA curriculum that balances career and life 

The SDA Bocconi MBA is an ambitious undertaking. While it requires diligence and motivation, it also offers a unique opportunity to improve personally and professionally. From day one you will be plunged into a very intensive period of full-time work that progresses in set stages.

It is demanding, sometimes stressful, but it is also sustainable, allowing a proper balance between career aspirations and personal life.

The SDA Bocconi MBA: an integrated and innovative curriculum

  • is based on real world management knowledge;
  • draws directly on our faculty's current research work;
  • blends the analytical and social dimensions of managerial issues and instills ethical values;
  • takes place in a unique learning environment: theoretical and practical; diverse, teamwork oriented; open to the world and fostering interpersonal communication.

The MBA also provides many opportunities outside the classroom: extra-curricular activities belong to the mainstream program and offer a unique opportunity for life-long networking and friendship.
